Things have been a bit slow with my King Buggy conversions as I had to find some larger magnets to fix inside the wing section.
I have now rebuilt the wings and am pretty much ready to rebuild the fuselage and undercoat them. I may paint the inside of the cockpit before I glue the fuselage together and then mask the cockpit to spray the rest.
The Reaper range of figures covers just about every genre, I have a good few from most of the collections. Their sci-fi range includes some armoured troopers that I have used in several different game systems, most recently in a Grey Knights Retinue and a Rogue Stars Space Cops crew.
I have long been a fan of Kev White’s models and I have had a small band of the Grymn knocking around for ages. They were painted many years ago and could do with being touched up and inked for Rogue Stars.
The larger chap here is Geezer, armed with a rather substantial machine gun. Not sure I need to touch up the old paint job on him so much, I quite like the way he looks as is.
I like the way this has turned out, it will look great in the Steampunk Mechanica force crewed by a couple of Automotans.
The colour scheme matches the rest of the army quite nicely.
This is a random Dark Angels Space Marine that I picked up out of a bits box years ago with no real purpose other than I liked the figure.
I have eventually painted him up to use in Rogue Stars. Armed with a massive two handed sword and a pistol on his holster, I reckon he has a Power Fist under his cloak.
The first few Rogue Stars games I have played have been using mainly human crews. This was leading me down the route of Space Marines in heavy armour and they all ended up being pretty much the same.
I wanted to try a non-human crew and use a different species for each model.
My first attempt is this motley crew of desperadoes from the far reaches of The Loft Full Of Lead.
I still have to try a massive Dragyri, but that will happen at some stage in the future.
I have been collecting Zoats for what seems like ages, keeping an eye out on eBay and buying if the price did not go to high. My plan had been twofold, firstly to make a No Limits army of Zoats and secondly to use them in a retro Tyranid army.
What encouraged me to paint up a test model model recently was to use one in Rogue Stars. Not very happy with the paint job on this one, the inking failed and ended up pooling everywhere.
I will have to start on some of the others, I think there are twenty-six more.
